be the most skeptical in the western count refusing to accept any short term deal. reports now in the meeting stumbling blocks. three days of talks here high level talks at a started off with a lot of optimism had ended with essentially no deal so we know that the nature of these talks were very important in the sense that the ministers who were here in town had dropped and changed their schedules in order to come here enjoy these talks with a lot of speculation is that a deal might be reached but in the end it didn't come to have to pass a law five you said the foreign minister of france was one of those really was vocal about his reservations on be initial text presented and the other in detail one of those the rest of the nations would be the stockpiled with their stockpiles of iran as well as the reactor that's scheduled to open sometime next year in iran he said he was not satisfied that he wanted something an agreement that was serious as and also he had such something like that he was not ready to get involved in
a calm game and this had angered lawmakers in iran they were saying that france here really was hindering the talks and had blamed france even calling it blackmail on terror but what's interesting is when the e.u. foreign policy chief catherine ashton as well as the foreign minister of iran. came coming here to give their press conference they were kind of upbeat and they were hopeful about the next round of talks scheduled for november the twenty year old said that he was disappointed and that he disturbed that something like this there would definitely be there will definitely be differences among the different parties involved but really it has taken quite a different turn from what was expected when we were hearing statements coming from foreign ministers of the u.k. william hague. seize the moment trying to come up with a very elusive deal but in the end indeed there is no deal that has been reached but again talks will be rescheduled november the twenty. some of the main sticking
points on the table were a reaction to run could potentially used to produce weapons grade nuclear fuel and how sanctions relief would proceed let's now take a clue. negotiations were trying to achieve their fast according to some sources the six world powers want iran to stop all activities to enrich uranium at twenty percent iran would also be obliged to limit the number of centrifuges and allow normal insuring of its facilities in return while powers would unfreeze some of iran's assets and perhaps ease sanctions that have crippled its economy and earlier we talked about this sign a director of iran's fons news agency and he thinks paris is high that sometimes doing a deal with iran to score points in the region or just playing a bad cop or. france has good relations with israel france helped israel to complete building the nuclear plant of their man are on the other hand
france is having good relations with the arab cons in their region so in this case countries and there's the. opposing any deal with iran. france can enjoy the difference between israel and cons used with the us to strengthen the entire its ties with those conferees and the other is speculation which is put forward is that. it is said it is being said that the worst cancers are playing the good cop and. here it is the france is playing the role of bad cop in dealing with iran. meanwhile iran's moultrie new leader has has reiterated that iran won bow down to international pressure and be forced to give up rights to enrichment even before the talks began on thursday thousands were rallying in toronto chanting anti-american slogans and burning israeli flags on trees paul scott has been finding out what got them so riled up. let's argue more
your manic republic of iran is ready to engage immediately in time bound intake to talks to build mutual confidence and the removal of mutual uncertainties hassen rouhani his recent speech at the un general assembly was said by many to represent a thorin in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is king to initiate warmer ties with the global community but not everyone is king for this to happen. the hard line conservative protesters threw eggs at the president upon his return to tehran and now those uncomfortable with the idea of increased diplomacy with washington have launched the first ever down with the usa contest the idea is to find the most creative anti us propaganda contestants are invited to submit photographs posters caricature poems hymns and blogs all relating to the slogan down with the usa over three
thousand dollars are up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark death of america which will renew the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. well the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine iranian revolution in the u.s. backed government was and to thrive and since then it's been widely used by critics of washington those critics now favor holly's willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the resolution they also see no reason to start diplomacy with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going
to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very very file ball accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts by the u.s. government to suggest these sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent is on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to anti american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down paul scott's r.t. . and on the way here on our c a rest were keep aeration island indefinite detention. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do smiles and sunshine feel the shotgun time of day with no end in sight for the u.s. military base where hunger striking detainees are being force fed behind bars. and
other diplomatic scandal laid out in the faces of european officials this week after a british newspaper reported the u.k. is operating a secret listening station in berlin to spy on bad german allies they quickly housed on the u.k. embassy ruby is believed. to be able to intercept communications in berlin german officials are investigating the claims that's while their hands are already full with reports the german chancellor follows been timed by american intelligence european parliament member paul murphy admits there will be a diplomatic fallout but says political interests will outweigh any public criticism. germany and britain are both in the european union together they are meant to be part of a common political project and so it's more difficult for them to express the open and tiger doesn't that doesn't exist it does but at the same time i think this is going to have consequences it will deepen the divides between the. britain
as represented by the government and within germany. there is pundits sturrock difference there with britain more representing an atlanticist view of the european union obviously being part of the so-called five values together with the u.s. you know u.s. led was founded a stranger in new zealand and britain whereby they spy on others but supposedly agree not to spy on each other i think actually what would happen is that there's an attempt there'd be an attempt by the governments to saudi express and give voice to the anger felt by people but then to try and put a lid on it because if you look at what's happening between the the you with the us i mean there is words of criticism but then both sides want to get on for example with the the free trade agreement between the you and the u.s. because they see it as being in the interests of big business on both sides in a world where everyone spying on everyone else although she's more important not is poke to one individual who's great at its new free online say that. we decided to
open a data center and here we're taking an exclusive tour through one of the few data companies standing up to the u.s. government in the name of privacy i think we do residential actually very well pete ashdown is the owner of x. mission and independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this tower here handles most of our e-mail unlike most power players in silicon valley x. mission refuses to give the n.s.a. backdoor access to its networks since nine hundred ninety eight x. mission has rejected a judge in the u.s. government for more information stored on private servers like these we don't share our information about our customers if you don't have a warrant the majority of law enforcement requests ashdown says he's received and refused have been subpoenaed is lacking accountability and necessary approval by a judge this is actually an amiga since launching his company in one thousand nine
hundred three ashdown says he's filled no more than two customer data requests from the federal government make sure your funds the current climate of america's unrestrained surveillance matrix has been facilitated by corporations who have spent years secretly working with the n.s.a. regulation government contracts and. monetary. compensation are in my opinion the three reasons why they're cooperating ironically utah is probably the most unlikely home for a privacy champion roughly twenty seven miles away from x. mission. is the n.s.a.'s newly constructed one point five billion dollar data center i think it's a stain on the tech industry of utah all the n.s.a. activities are a stain on american internet businesses ashdown has vowed to face jail time if that's what's needed to protect his customers from being monitored what surprises
this fourth amendment advocate. is that big data companies like google will promise to do the same. archie. the n.s.a. scandal was one of the major reasons the group qualls to the rally worldwide this week the anonymous group held a million miles hundreds of cities protesting against online privacy infringement corruption and more were reported later this. sharing the olympic spirit with outer space the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games has been taken on its fast ever space will lin's of france was a mission control to witness the unique moment or blitz very exciting thing to watch live here because what we're actually getting to see right now is down on the floor the engineers are essentially walking the cosmonauts through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand
so it's again. it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the ninety six olympics once for the two thousand and six but this time in space it's actually going on a space walk it's not just inside of a shuttle or inside of the eye it's this so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cause minutes and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world now the torch has a couple more days left on the i assess before it heads back down to earth with a three person crew on a soyuz spacecraft again and so it's then going to rejoin this historic relay to saatchi for the kick off in february of the olympics so we will be bringing you all the live developments of the olympic torch right here on r.t. . and more international news stories coming up after this short break.
you got a lot of sneering and negative press for your engagements here in russia especially public appearances with food and even though they weren't explicitly political you were just supporting sports. people regime has become very adept at is controlling the media example. c.n.n. do i think c.n.n. is you know completely telling it like it is no i think they have a new gender i think there is is what you paid for. and i think.
this is that we play on aussie let's move on now and before we continue with ali bacher day week's events a quick update now on today's developing story on the death toll from the devastating typhoon haiyan that swept across the philippines could exceed ten thousand that's the fear of local officials although the government has yet to confirm the latest estimates among the wost hit areas is the safety of tucker bansal west survivors a saying the scenes are horrific also hundreds of thousands have been reported displaced by that. the red cross confirms twelve hundred people have been killed by
the. cyclon which is the strongest in history to hit the region the typhoon is now moving towards vietnam where thousands have been evacuated from coastal areas. following typhoon haiyan altie dot com for you where you can get the latest ripples on the devastation caused by the storm. more than a thousand detainees continue a grueling hunger strike at guantanamo bay was no deadline for their release or the closure of the notorious u.s. military prison. when behind the barbed wire to find out how deeply entrenched in the multibillion dollar facility. despite misconceptions give lho is not just a geo to be or not to be shot it's also a forty five square mile military base with no plans of going anywhere. full of signs of established american life it is
a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonalds on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell vested financial interests that you go to starbucks and. all these other places that help to set up a logistical support for the troops that are all over the there are about five and a half thousand people living and working on the base roughly half serve the actual detention center the u.s. government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract servant territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand fifty nine most officers come
here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from home life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to there's the don't tell an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and the ticky bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we actually get quite a bit of time off like a decent man and we go to the beach and there are active. m.w. our stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to get well on state of the art facilities. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do. being in a remote location doesn't even have to affect eating habits and all you can eat lunch costs just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price
a downside though information or lack thereof for a decision a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the base dubbed no stream a stand by some soldiers even so we're told those serving here are banned from looking at websites like wiki leaks for example once classified always classified. even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a life of an costs here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here
were now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a two piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time i was going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v. crews to see a lot of pre-selected books to avoid certain topics violence sexual and religious stuff controversy shelves packed with magazines d.v.d.'s and video games plenty of ways for legit prisoners of war to pass the indefinite time they're kept here without charges and party guantanamo bay cuba. egypt's deposed president mohamed morsi along with fourteen muslim brotherhood members went on trial on monday only to see its possible poland until january the eighth the alsa leaders facing charges of encouraging
a deadly crackdown on dissent in cairo last december and this footage is from the opening of be hearings they first. morsi is that his arrest four months ago he refused to wear the mandatory white uniform for defendants and rejected because authority assisting his still the country's illegitimate leader during his transfer to prison police had to face off against angry pro morsi mobs in the capital and other cities of his belcher gauge public opinion on the prosecution of egypt's first democratically elected president was the. grammy a star is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi rami has little hope for egypt's future as morsi goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters are going for the revolutionaries are now in the worst scenario we have ever been since two thousand and eleven morsi
should be tried but it's comic that mubarak trial should be held up at every turn while the morsy trial is moving along so fast what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to have the will to push through the court cases of remnants of the former regime tahrir square once the heartbeat of the revolution has become just another busy roundabout in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but after the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence rights groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other mr brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown against a brotherhood a very. selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling of the security
operators continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is encouraging its own enforcing its own interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on a specific group of transitional justice either we're trying everyone on meaningful one or actually taking the route to the south africa bureau and many many others but this truth unable station that seems far away as pro morsi protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is morsi is trial will not deliver much needed justice for egypt the brothers set the stage for further instability and turmoil. for r t cairo. this week the global protest movement anonymous held a million mask march in hundreds of cities across the world it brought together both concerned with online privacy corporate greed jam fairies and of the causes my colleague andrew pharma spoke with american activist greg he believes all right
isn't always. one of my big pushes with all of the kind of real world stuff we've been doing not the online stuff for me has been to get more people what i like to call activated get more people out there just doing something you know i don't even care what you believe i want you on the streets telling people about it in getting things done so i think this type of event is going to just help to get more people active in the system and i have a feeling that more people active in the system can only be better for the people g. fail anonymous. people because you talked about the protests there which is fair enough but also they do hack websites and people could legitimately say when actually is not a criminal offense to be want to be part of this there's a distinction there you call it criminal you know what's right and what's wrong is not exactly in line with what's legal and what's he's evil and so it's really up to each individual to decide just how far they're willing to go with their protests.
the glitz and glamour in moscow soared to a whole new level as a way to six of the world's top pieces competed for the title of miss universe and his case to feel there was that for us busy to the twenty fifth seed has been won by this event it was god is that the twenty five year old love to take the right road she was its night like the wind down this was it was the same rest of judges in the cars not the sequence as when she spoke about the big c. c. b. a c. the weight of the contest nights where that week to lol so you get all the dates were all that i knew you would love story of the man's out that was even the cause of beauty was a little solace in the miss universe to katie by this she is indeed a lucky lady to assist us that it is that we cannot live just good mood we have this even sign of the aries this book was on the stage strumming the strings was
the old stuff was it by the lights go. out and we know that this competition is watched by one billion people from the sun didn't see the countries the world see the light that. next one hundred actions steven segal gives. his mind with some inside politics to. remember way back when we first talked about the first downloadable guns that could be printed out on a three d. printer at home while technology moves pretty quickly because british police have already busted in legal armory pretty out firearm parts and special three d.
printers this technology may make gun control literally impossible in the same way the banning of burning books has become futile and the past they used to be able to just burn books or forbid them from being printed but in the age of the internet all you need is a scanner and an internet connection and the information that's found in a book cannot be destroyed because it is out there on the magical ether of the earth so basically the near future any person with even half a brain and some patients could start making guns in their basement which means the gun control laws will basically become pointless because they'll never be able to catch all the people doing it nor will be able to take the guns not even obama or the hardest of hardcore liberals this technology could be the best thing to happen to the second amendment ever but i shust my opinion.
on the welcome to the park it's a plot that seems unrealistic even by how the stand there it's russia and the united states get so frustrated with each other that bad diplomatic communication it's got so bad many of them until one fail. actually makes a couple of polls here and there on south's everything. steven seagal played that role in real life and he joins us now on worlds apart mr siegel thank you very much for your time now one of the first guests on the show was dana rohrabacher senator from california who came to moscow in june he was investigating suspects looking for information about suspects in the boston marathon bombing but he told me that that trip would have been possible without your participation how did you become such an unlikely cultural ambassador for the two countries.
